Fall Winter 2012 Trends - Metallics

Metallics are one of those trends impossible to be missed in the next coming months. Metallics were everywhere on the runway and have now officially invaded our favorite stores. Like any other trend, the street will decide if metallics will or not be a huge hit, but from what I'm seeing now I think it will. On top of being everywhere, metallics is a trend very easy to adopt so most of us aspiring fashionistas will probably give it a try. Start with a belt or shoes which you can match virtually anything in your wardrobe. For a more fierce and edgy look go for the metallic trousers, skirt, dress and even metallic coat and you'll be the star of your party (well, I'm guessing that if you're wearing a gold coat you're going to a party). I personally love this trend, and I'm looking forward to start wearing it. I'll probably go with the shoes as I already have my last year's gold jeans.

There are so many metallic items that I didn't even know where to start to prepare my selection . I didn't choose any metallic bags because I personally don't like them. Even the gold Balenciaga city bag and gold Stella Mccartney Falabella bag look tacky, which is definitely what you don't want from a bag, right ? I don't think that I will be carrying a metallic bag anytime soon...

From top lef: Maje gold top (net-a-porter), silver jeans (hm), 7FaM gold jeans (shopbop), pewter shirt (hm), gunmetal biker (topshop), silver laptop case (mango), Jimmy Choo silver pumps (my theresa), Moda in Pelle pumps (new look)

I am in love with the silver Jimmy Choo pumps, so simple yet sophisticated, they are my super favorite ! In real life, I'm coveting a pair of gold boots and I think I'm close to getting my own. Keep following me on the blog and you will soon know what they look like.

How about you, what metallics are you falling for ?

  1. Coucou marta,

    Que dire d'autre que ton article est top top top!! Comme tu le sais, j'ai adopté les escarpins argentés que je trouvent absolument canons!! Je les portent sur de nombreux looks & je suis fan.

    Tu me parlais de boots argentées cet été. Tu n'adoptes pas?
    Par contre la ceinture dorée, je dis que c'est un must sur robe monochrome. LOVE!!

    J'espère que tu passes de bons congés. Bisous & à bientôt :-).

    1. Merci ma belle, je t appelle cette semaine ;) xxx

  2. I'm not into metallic myself but for some reason, I've always been drawn to silver heels. I think you've made a great choice in the Jimmy Choo heels. It's a classic and the metallic silver is a wonderful "pop" of color.

  3. Cool! I never thought metallic designs will look really great. Well, I believe it depends on whoever wears them. I should at least try to see how they look on me.


Thank you for passing by and taking the time to write a comment, I really appreciate it !
